We just returned from a week's family vacation at a condo we rented at the Silverpick. There were lots of positives and a couple negatives.
First, the positives:
It's a great location -- about 30 minutes from Durango, and only 5 minutes from Purgatory. The setting is spectacular. The condo was comfortable and was a great place to hang out with family. We had dinner one night at Sow's Ear (the restaurant in the lodge), and it was excellent - I highly recommend it.
And the negatives:
Two irksome things. First, the coffee maker in the condo we rented did not work. Especially considering that this was not an inexpensive place to stay, why isn't someone checking to confirm that things like this work? Second, there was no wifi in the condo we rented. The listing on the Silverpick website said that this unit has wifi. When I asked about it at the front desk, I was assured that EVERY unit has wifi. But trust me, this unit did not. It's not the end of the world to spend a week on vacation without internet access, but again this place was not cheap. If it is important to you to have wifi access, you cannot believe what you are told either on the website or by management. Be forewarned.
